In 1974 one of the great fights of the century was taking place in Kinshasa, Zaire, between George Foreman, the champion and Mohammed Ali. Sponsored by the government of Zaire, it was a celebration of black sports and entertainment. Consequently, America’s most popular African-American artists were invited to entertain the many thousands of people from around the world who had come to see the great battle. Among these great entertainers were The Pointer Sisters and B.B. King, performing for an audience of more than 50,000 fans. Their shows were shot in 35mm on six cameras and directed by Leon Gast who recently won an Academy Award for “When We Were Kings”. If you look closely you will see Muhammad Ali in the audience of both these shows. Songs include: African Dancers, Hands Up, Wang Dang Doodle All Night Long, Steam Heat, Salt Peanuts, Swanee River Medley, Old Songs, Ba Meir Bist Du Schien, That’s Aplenty, Alexandra’s Ragtime Band, I Wish I Could Shimmy, Yes We Can, and Love Up In Them Hills.
